#94: From Success That Sucked to Real Happiness Through Self-Mastery | Dr. Valerie René Sheppard

Dr. Valerie René Sheppard is the bestselling author of “Living Happy to Be ME!: Dancing Your Soul Lightstyle.” She earned her PhD in Consciousness & Human Potential, and is CEO of The Heartly Center for Mindfulness and Self-Mastery.

What would it look like if you danced with life?

It’s been about 6 years since Dr. Valerie had a catastrophic stroke in front of an audience at UC, Irvine. Listen in as she reflects on the years leading up to that moment, and recounts the blessings and divine guidance that enabled her to embrace and learn from whatever life brought to her.

Dr. Valerie opens up about “having it all” as a Vice President in the corporate world in her pre-stroke life, and shares the GFRMoment when she knew it was time to follow another path. Hear how her new spiritual journey inadvertently prepared her to cope and recover when her brain hemorrhage happened, and also led her to pilot a groundbreaking Self-Mastery curriculum for emerging adults (her term for the college students she teaches) at University of California, Irvine.
